From Nature to the Technical phenomenon..Meteora & Lake Plastira

Meteora: An otherwordly stone state on the west side of the Thessalian land. Huge, grey-green monoliths, four hundred meters high, a place unique in the whole world. Here, the senses are ruled by feelings that are strong and undefined.

 Southwest of Meteora stand the mountains of Koziakas, an extension of the Thessalian range of Agrafa. At an altitude of 900-1,700 meters there are large fir forests. The region of Aspropotamos-Koziakas is traversed by a large network of   mountain streams that flow to  Acheloos and Peinios rivers. On the banks of these streams we encounter forests with sycamores, willows, maples and other hydrophilic plants. The ecological value of these forests is huge, because they are shelter for many animals and birds.

 Close to them, lies Lake Plastira, the artificial lake that exceeds, though in beauty many natural lakes. Because of its high altitude, the surrounding landscape, full with fir, chestnuts, plane trees, is quite unique and the whole area sustaining a rich fauna as well,has been designated as part of the Natura 2000 network.
